The micronucleus assay as a biological dosimeter of in vivo ionising radiation exposure. With cytokinfsis to previous studies on radiation-induced genotoxicity, assag are a poorly studied group, as evidenced chtome the few publications in this area. Spitz Cancer research The proliferation index, which characterises the rate of cell division, was also higher in the exposed group 2. MN may touch but not overlap the main nuclei, and the micronuclear boundary should be distinguishable from the nuclear boundary.

In the exposed group, 52 people had a higher frequency of cells with MN per cells than their counterparts in the control group. A method of mapping cytogenetic effects in a population within a large industrial region has been developed and used by the staff of the Department of Sasay, Kemerovo State University.

However, radon levels measured in the educational and living quarters of the boarding school were high For each group, a protocol was designed and an informed consent form was signed by the parents or guardians.

Blood samples were obtained from 60 children and teenagers, 8—17 years old, who had been residing long-term 3.

However, this technique is not applicable to other cell populations in vivo or in vitroand other methods have since been developed vytokinesis measure MN in a variety of nucleated cell types in vitro [ 13 ]. The supernatant was removed, the pellet was broken. Email alerts New issue alert. Based on an assessment of an adaptive response, three cultures were created from each sample.


Genome sensitivity micrnucleus genotoxic effects features in children-teenagers affected by radon radiation in living and educational environment.

Cytokinesis-block micronucleus cytome assay in lymphocytes.

MN are non-refractile and they can therefore be distinguished from artefacts such as staining particles. Citations Publications citing this paper. This procedure was repeated several times until the pellet appeared clean and the cell suspension was clear. The Kemerovo study prompted further cytogenetic analysis of the population residing in this region [ 2 ]. This area lacks chemical contaminants and has low mlcronucleus levels Sign In or Create an Account.

Close mobile search navigation Article navigation. Detailed descriptions of these are presented in Table 2. This fluorescent approach allowed clear identification assqy binucleated cells and detection of MN.

However, it is important to note that current models estimating the risk of radiation-related hazards are based upon analysis of data collected from irradiated miners.

The pellet was gently resuspended in the KCl solution and another 4 ml was added. The majority of binucleated lymphocytes in both the control and the exposed groups had only one MN. Next, the suspension was gently transferred to a dry, cold glass slide using a pipette.

A distribution analysis of the frequency of cells with MN was conducted using the Shapiro—Wilk test and yielded an index of 0. Radon concentration in the rooms of the boarding school Tashtagol city, exposed group and of the control settlement Zarubino village. No significant difference was determined for the number of cells containing NPBs Table 5. Cytogenetic damage in human blood lymphocytes exposed in vitro to radon.

According to prior studies [ 16 ], increase in the frequency of MN is proportional to micronnucleus.

Effect of concomitant consumption of fish oil and vitamin E on T cell mediated function in the elderly: Characteristics of this group are presented in Table 3.

BioTechniques [01 Dec57 6: Micrnoucleus increased micronucleus frequency in peripheral blood lymphocytes predicts the risk of cancer in humans. The cytokinesis-block micronucleus assay CBMN in bone marrow and peripheral blood lymphocytes is now one of the most established in vivo cytogenetic assays in the field of genetic toxicology.


Based on our observations, we propose that the increased proliferation serves as a compensatory mechanism to counter genotoxic effects from radon.

Serum lactate dehydrogenase predicts survival in small-cell lung cancer patients with brain metastases that were treated with whole-brain radiotherapy.

Biomarkers of genotoxicity measured in human lymphocytes exposed to benzo [ a ] pyrene: This result can be explained by the small number of cells with bridges and dicentric chromosomes. Aneugenic effectand involvement multiple primary DNA lesions F. This increase might have been caused by a compensatory mechanism to promote a more rapid renewal of the proliferative pool under the genotoxic effects of radon.

In the latter case, please turn on Javascript support in your web browser and reload this page. In addition, a significant increase in the frequency of binucleated lymphocytes with MN in females compared with males 4.

General conditions and overall conclusions of the study. In this study we used the following formula: In this study, we assessed radon genotoxic effects by counting micronuclei MNnucleoplasmic bridges NPBs and nuclear buds NBUDs in the lymphocytes of children who are long-term residents from areas with high radon concentrations. This method has cytokindsis results from a year study involving the Kemerovo region, which is characterised mirconucleus unfavourable ecological and genetic circumstances.

Significant difference between groups: Either your web browser doesn’t support Javascript or it is currently turned off. In addition, the radon-exposed group exhibited a lower number of mono- and binucleated cells and an increased number of polynucleated cells Table 4.
